Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

^Language in Rock Band is bizarre. They censored the repeated use of the word "God" out of Fallout Boy's "This Ain't a Scene..." but left the line "They aren't sluts like you" in "Celebrity Skin".

My European copy has a clear notice on the back of the box stating that the game contains strong language too.

I like firehawk's suggestion - all the songs should be unlocked for Quickplay (single and multiplayer). Otherwise, people buy this to have a laugh with the family at Christmas only to find they can only play a few of the songs.

I know games are supposed to be about the challenge, but I wouldn't be too happy if I played Half-Life 2 on Easy only to be told that after being transported out of Nova Prospekt I'd have to play the game from the start again on Medium to go any further.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

The problem, as I've read since I haven't played it yet, is that because it's based on that world tour mode, you never know if you are going to unlock a new song since all the songs are randomly selected.

And what's worse is that if you have lots of DLC, your chances of getting a new song are diminished. What's the point of that?

My hands are now killing me but I did it! I unlocked them all! I made it to the last set on Medium!

Metallica are now my enemies and must die for inflicting Enter Sandman upon my poor hands.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

On Rock Band 1, Enter Sandman never really bothered me. It was always fun to play, even on expert.

The two songs I still haven't beaten on expert are "Green Grass and High Tides" and "Flirtin' with Disaster".

Goddamned southern rock just kills me. Every time.

^Yes, well, you probably don't suck quite as much as I do, then. Even getting this far on medium was quite an achievement for me.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I'm not trying to brag, I'm just trying to bitch about those two songs. How the hell are you supposed to get past such batshit insane guitar solos? I have yet to find a technique.

No idea, and I wasn't suggesting you were bragging. I completely admit that I'm rubbish.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

You have to use the solo buttons. It's easier said than done since I can't do those songs on Expert either.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I can do a little better with the solo buttons, but not enough to make it through.

Even practicing at 70, 80, 90 percent doesn't help too much. Not on expert.

Those songs are friggin impossible.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Yep, I always die on the solos for those songs. I just stopped trying.

I never use the solo buttons. I could never get used to the feel of them. To beat GG&HT, I actually cheated a bit. On the part near the end where is goes:

1
--1
----1
--1
1
--1
----1
--1
1

over and over, I ended up faking it by doing just the descending parts, hitting 75% of the notes. It was enough to get me through it. I suck at that kind of pattern. Once I did that, I had enough Star Power and crowd applause to get to the end.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

Maybe I don't have enough "cheer" built up, but if I try to fake the solos by missing notes, I end up failing pretty fast.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

That might be worth trying. Generally I just end up saving my star power. That only works for short solos though.

Re: The unofficial Rock Band thread.

I'm not good with the solo buttons, which may be why I'm not very good at expert mode.

One small cheat to help you get past sections you suck at is to load up your overdrive and then let it loose at the hard parts. You obviously won't be getting the multiplier bonus for all the notes you miss, but the ones you get right during overdrive will at least keep your power bar thing from dropping.
